Is duniya which Jinne Rishte

Sab Jhoote te behrooop

Ma da rishta SAB ton Sacha

Maa hai Rab da Rooop

Most relations in this world are all untrue and sham 

Mother’s relation is truest of all 

Mum equals God 

vekh lai vilayat yaro– vekh lai Vilayat

goriyaan rangaan de which dil ne black

Have seen and been at foreign lands, have been there and done all
Fair skins have black hearts
wal suwalle gaane gake fir v dil nahin bharda

mera maa de hathaan diyan pakiyaan rotiyaan khaan nu bada hi dil karda

aj maa de hathaan diyaan pakiyan rotiyaan khan nu bada hi dil karda

Have sung different songs yet my heart remains empty
My heart yearns painfully for pancakes made by mum and filled with love

PPPS :- Weekend is here , thank god for that .. So have a great weekend people .. enjoy the mini break. See you on the Monday morning 🙂  it has become very very cold here and icy so be safe driving and Keep warm ..

Hope no one sees me .. all this for meeeeeeeeeee

The last post I did was a week ago, I have never been like this not to post anything especially with the wonderful ideas of Wordless Wednesday and Thursday challenge, you at least get Two post a week , But it did not work out for me for this week…  I got a lot of posts in my draft, I have opened them to see if I can finish them off but not that lucky somehow after a few days the chain of thought disappears .. Ah well 😦

Week gone by has been interesting a few ups and downs .. Learnt a good lesson one being that Money is not everything and people who are rich and posh do have a clip on their shoulders and no matter what they say the I am superior or the arrogance factor does come into one with money.

This is what happened well this is my side of the story so I may be wrong , I had a wedding to attend on sunday,  The family are rich VERY RICH had about 1200+ people invited , though the hall booked was not big enough , soon the AC gave way and we were sweating.

I was sitting on a table with a couple of my friends one kid when two families came and sat with us , the ladies about 4 of them well well dressed , I would not need to ROB a BANK to be rich could have just robbed them for they had enough gold on them to make me rich… At one stage the thought did come to my mind to follow the ladies and somehow get my hands on those jewelled necklaces AH LA Amitabh bachan style trying to steal the necklace off the princess whatever movie that was ..

They were talking fine all was going well till the FOOD came, now what had happened was there was a kid sitting on one chair who was having something in the plate , he went away to some other table , Now this Ladies Kid came late and sat on the same seat .. (YOU WITH ME READERS 🙂 )…  but the plate was dirty … so the starters came we were having them and enjoying but this poor kid was waiting for a new plate to come ..

So many guests.. not many to serve, the coming of the new plate was taking its time …

Anyway the Non-Veg starters finished the kid could not have any, So I got up and went to the kitchen to get him a plate, got him that .. Now we needed food, So one of my friends called a waiter and asked him to get us another tray , about 10 minutes later a tray came over, I got the tray and handed over to the kid to put as much as he wants which he did.. the lady I am assuming his mum or grand mum.. took the tray and put it next to her , after the kid had his fill I got up to pick the trey 🙂 Well this is when this lady looked at me , Caught hold of the Tray and Says “Eh Saade Lai hai”..  (This is for US)

I was shocked WHAT.. you might be thinking what am i saying but i did not expect her to behave like that you are sitting on a table where we all share the food, I mean it’s just food can always ask them to get more , I mean in indian wedding food and drink is never short and in our culture you generally get to eat as much as you want ..

Maybe I am wrong but i did feel a bit awkward, WON’T YOU PEOPLE 🙂

What made me smile was when she and the kid could not eat any more she looks at me and says I can have it , I said no thank you 🙂 One of my friends was helping with the serving,  He brought us fresh and steaming food again, So I asked the woman here she can have more .. 🙂  don’t know if i did right or wrong but I did feel this is not the right way to behave especially when you are sitting on a big table and all are sharing food.. Tell me if I am wrong ?

I also felt that if the Lady was so worried about the kid , why could she not share her Plate with him, I mean does it matter her son or grandson , I mean I am sure all you mom’s there would not mind in giving your plate to the little kid or even sharing the same plate. She was busy enjoying the food all the time without giving a piece to the kid.

So one might have money but one can’t buy manners with that money 🙂 ..

That was that..  The rest of the week was very busy with lot of work and things happening , there was the Take That concert in Birmingham so had a lot of work with that..

Thankfully its Friday today .. Weekend is here and I am going to LONDONNnnnnnnnnnnnnnn 🙂 till monday night , It is work but but but evenings and nights is with my cousins so for a change all 5 of us will be together for 2 nights in london .. so cheers to that …

Thank you to many who have emailed asking If i was alive and why I did not post although it was only a week Thank you , yes thank you for your love everyone , I am alive I am sure everyone will know when I am no more 🙂

Have a great Weekend Everyone .. smile have fun and eat a lottttt I would say drink too cause that’s whats going to happen this side and this time hopefully no one will want to eat the whole tray 🙂
